Official: Zuniga pens Napoli contract

Juan Camilo Zuniga has signed a five-year Napoli contract extension, reportedly including a €35m buy-out clause.

“I love the club and the fans, while I am very happy living in Naples. I hope to end my career here.”

The wing-back’s current deal was set to expire at the end of the season and the delays in agreeing a new package fuelled reports of a move to Juventus.

“I always believed in Camilo and he believed in Napoli! He deserved our recognition,” said the patron.

Zuniga is expected to earn €4m per season plus performance-related bonuses and the club is protected by a buy-out clause worth €35m.

He has also been linked with Liga giants Barcelona.
